Coloring In The Gradient
Progress! We’ve finally finished our monochrome brown scale under-painting and it is time for color. Once again Julie challenges us to create color wheels and color gradients. We must prove ourselves worthy of color on paper before we can touch the wall with our brushes dipped in earth tones.
We have all proven our color-worthiness and as we turn to the wall, it seems all our brave artists have disappeared, cowed by color. Though a yellow cactus bloom did appear before the morning was out there were still few to be found adding to the wall.
Eventually however the artists started to gather and cautiously put paint to the wall. As they slowly worked across the wall the images began to come alive and read much more clearly.
